organizations that have distorted islam, or falsely used the banner of islam to engage in their destructive acts. and we've got to be clear about that. we've got to be clear about that, because if we're going to successfully reduce the terrorist threat, then we need all the allies we can get. the folks who are most interested in a war between the united states or the west and islam are al qaeda. that's what they have been banking on. we want to be clear about who the enemy is here. it's a handful of a tiny, minority of people who are engaging in horrific acts. and have killed muslims more than anybody else. the other reason it's important for us to remember that is because we have got millions of muslim-americans, our fellow citizens in this country. they're going to school with our kids. they're our neighbors. they're our friends. they're our co-workers. and, you know, when we start acting as if their religion is somehow offensive, what are we saying to them? i've got muslims who are fighting in afghanistan. in the uniform of the united states armed services. they're out there, putting their li

all of us and we hated him. again, it was so ugly. but, i always think -- you talk about james madison's vision for how it's supposed to work. even when you have people going like this, or maybe because you have people going like this, balanced the budget four years in a row, first time since the 1920s. welfare reform, two successful military campaigns, 22 million new jobs. a lot of different things. so yesterday the idea of the interview was we were going to figure out if bill clinton were president, what would he do to get this economy started? i would suggest the most important thing to talk about and, of course, he didn't disappoint, did he? >> no, he didn't. >> brilliant responses. and yet the rest of the day we were savaged. i was savaged with why didn't you bring up monica? why didn't you bring up impeachment. and then the left, why were you so critical of barack obama? which i wasn't. but does this none, jon meacham suggest what's wrong with this country? everybody, all the adults at least are focussed on how do we get the economy started again. how do we grow jobs. these harsh
using against them. that means going negative. it means brutally honest, devastatingly negative ads. as one strategist pointed out, anyone who spends money on a positive ad may as well get give money to charity. the democrats are finally getting tough. and that's our top story tonight. >>> plus, what scares you? what's to fear if the republicans grab control of the congress? another government shutdown in order to shift spending power to the congress? a relentless campaign to take down president obama. listen tonight to what the republicans themselves are offering up. >>> also, we have a glimmer of good economic news this morning. the jobless rate ticked up a tenth of a point to 9.6%. and 54,000 jobs were lost overall because of the temporary census bureau jobs coming to an end. but the private sector added 67,000 new jobs, higher than expected. that offers hope that things are getting better in the real economic world out there. still some democrats are quite worried about ending bush tax cuts for the top brackets. we'll look into that. some of them are starting to get very wary at
which i would prefer, if they believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, it's not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is for a variety of reasons including it takes him off the economy and divides the democrats on a range of issues. but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis.f both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in that domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big deal. and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, foa variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. >> this is so rare to say here's my religious faith, i have to put it out as a shield. here
,000. and the surprising detail, the deficit is down. the treasury department reports the u.s. is on track to record a $1.3 trillion deficit for the first fiscal year of president obama's presidency. 8% lower. that is 8% lower despite the stimulus spending than the 2009 deficit which included the last months of the bush presidency and reflected economic policy signed into law by the end of 2008 by president bush. house republican leader john boehner wants to increase that deficit by $700 billion over ten years by extending those bush tax cuts on income over a quarter million. but with bob schieffer, he even admitted 99% of small businesses will see no benefit from the cut and that 3% of what he calls small businesses make half the money. >> in a joint committee on taxation, which is a nonpartisan body, says that only 3% of the small business people you keep talking about all the small business people that are going to get taxed, only 3% would be affected by that, or do you quarrel with that figure? is that a right figure or a wrong figure? >> well, it may be 3%, but it's half of small business income bec
to have you with us, liz. thanks so much. >> thanks, ed. >> in our survey i asked you do you think tea partiers care that 43.6 million americans are living in poverty? 5% of you said yes, 95% of you said no the tea partiers don't care. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz.

's operated as his father's pawn. he's accusing him of conning us to elect him president. what do you make of newt, howard? >> i've been covering newt for many years. he's a bomb thrower. he's a guy who knows the weak point to attack. what's interesting to me here is he feels free to say anything at this point. it's a kind of free fire zone within the conservative movement. and newt, who's always trying tu say the most outrageous thing and that goes back many, many years, now has moved from saying outrageous things about the ethics of the house members in the democratic leadership 15, 18 years ago, to saying these thin about a man that newt himself has no evidence for what he's alleging here.te he really has absolutely none. his facts are wrong. as mr. weigepointed out on his page and i'm just really not surprised, but kind of depressed by it. >> david, you covered this kind of spiritual territory. ideological territory. he's accusing as basically a zombie. saying his father hated the british white guys. his son is kind of a zombie like figure. in fact governed by a ghost. this is the kind
states. but ask yourself this, how appropriate is it clinton to backseat driving obama when he used to bristle the same thing happening to him in 1994. also, finish the following sentence. the tea party is "a," tearing apart the republican party or "b"," energizing the gop and opening up an enthusiasm gap. with democrat, the answer may tell us a lot and wait until you hear what eliot spitzer has to say about the fellow democrat who wants his old job, andrew cuomo. but that's in "the sideshow." host "face to face" on our nbc stations in nevada. and the politics editor for msnbc.com, von berger. look, we got to start with what happened on capitol hill. here's an exchange between michigan congressman john conyers and stephen colbert today. let's listen. >> i'm asking you to leave the committee room completely and submit your statement instead. >> i'm here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she'd like me to remove myself from the hearing room, i'm theme do so. >> that is correct. >>s that fair enough. >> von, let me start with you. you've been doing this as long as i have. watch

"countdown with keith olbermann" starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? how snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. the republicans again hint at filibustering tax cuts for the middle class. >> we think most americans think it's a bad idea to be raising taxes on anybody in the middle of' recession. even the rich? you might be wrong about that. the house democratic caucus meets to decide whether to force the republicans to reveal their toad diing to the rich by forcing republicans to vote against the middle class tax cuts. our special guests caucus chairman chris van holland and the pollster who addressed the caucus stan greenberg. republican racism mae culpa. last year jim greer led the charge, calling the president's speech to school kids, quote, indoctrination. now an extraordinary admission. i found that many within the gop have racist views, and i apologize to the president for my opposition to his speech last year and my efforts to play indicate the extremists who dominate our party today. who writes economic policy for that party?
